Roundtable: Financing Football Clubs (video)


Andrea Sartori acted as a moderator in a discussion panel about the financing of football clubs, involving the following sports organisations and companies: Portuguese giant SL Benfica SC, investment firm 23 Capital and legal advisory firm Cuatrecasas. The discussion covered various aspects, ranging from the traditional ways clubs access capital to the growing role of new lenders. Perhaps in light of new professional practices and regulations, participants concurred that football clubs are increasingly seen as business opportunities rather than risky companies.
